Part of the National Chlamydia screening programme, the Cornwall Chlamydia Screening Service supports 15-24 year olds to access chlamydia and gonorrhoea testing and treatment.
It also provides essential outreach and education to make sure young people know how to protect themselves and their partners from infection.
15-24 year olds living in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly can access free chlamydia and gonorrhoea tests from GPs, sexual health services, young people's services and online (18+).
The service recommends young people take a test once a year, or two weeks after sexual contact with a new partner.
The Cornwall Chlamydia Screening Service provides free outreach and testing to services across Cornwall including youth groups, colleges, sixth forms and other youth services.

The service also provides free promotional powerpoints about chlamydia/gonorrhoea screening for use on plasma screens in colleges and GP waiting rooms that advertise where young people can get more information and a test.
